Here’s a substantial recital, in every respect, from Colin Walsh. His 30-year association with Lincoln Cathedral’s IV/67 ‘Father’ Willis pays dividends aplenty, serving as an eloquent reminder of why it has long been called ‘the fairest in the land’. Walsh’s choice of every element at his disposal is immaculate, tonal contrasts and details delineated with painterly precision, technical challenges adroitly executed. Standout pieces include Jongen’s sublime Cantabile (op.37 no.1), Bossi’s majestic processional Entrée pontificale and Franck’s poetic op.18 Prélude, fugue et variation, realised here with enormous subtly. Pieces by Duruflé, Langlais and Henri Mulet complete a rewarding, immensely satisfying disc.
